Wish Upon A Bollywood Star by Pamela Q. Fernandes is a Bollywood romance with secrets, drama, some humour, and lots of cultural details.
Vir Seth finds himself in quite the predicament when Soumya Ninan decides to teach him a lesson about his attitude towards women and marriage. Vir’s world will be upended, battlelines will be drawn, while feelings become involved. What happens you ask? Well, you really need to read the book to discover all the details for yourself- no spoilers from me.
This is a very short, quick and easy read. I liked Soumya, but I really found it hard to connect to Vir, or get invested in their story. I think this is because we really don’t get too ‘know’ him all that well. We get Soumya’s perspective throughout the story, but don’t get to understand things from his point of view, which would have perhaps made him more relatable.
I wonder what Ms. Fernandes has in store for us next?
Thank you, Ms. Fernandes!
